Audio: Sonnymoon x Waajeed "Houstatlantavegas" (Remix)

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.sonnymoon

The homie Waajeed weaves together a tough nest of pizzicato violin stabs and echoey snares for Sonnymoon's cover of "Houstatlantavegas" to curl up in. Drake made it, Sonnymoon reimagined it and Jeedo remixed it, proving that the same way trash-culture accumulates on the internet like the smell of lolcat piss in a virtual tenement, dopeness also accretes. Listen and read Jeedo's firsthand description below:

I first heard about Sonnymoon at SXSW while hanging with No and Meezy fromblindiforthekids.  They played their rendition of Drake’s, “Houstalantavegas” and I was instantly hooked. Seeing that the duo doesn’t need a third leg producer, the only way I could work with them was do a remix.  We connected, they sent the vocals, and the rest is history… or at least history in the making.

@sonnymoon I’d love to work with you guys more in the future. Mucho respect. Until then, check this bling47 exclusive gem. They have new material dropping this spring and currently on tour. Check Plug Research for the dates. -Jeedo

To which we say: Hell, yeah. Hell, yeah. F*cking right.
